BBC America’s “Killing Eve” crashed the TCA Awards party as the freshman series led all other programs with five nominations for the 34th annual TCA Awards.

The Television Critics Association (TCA) revealed the nominees on Tuesday. Critics also showed love for FX’s “The Americans,” which ended its six-season run in May, handing out four nominations.

With 10 nominations, FX is the No. 1 network, followed by Netflix (nine) and NBC (seven). HBO, last year’s top-nominated network, split with BBC America with six apiece. Program of the Year will come down to “Atlanta,” “Killing Eve,” “The Americans,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “The Good Place,” and “This Is Us.”

In addition to Program of the Year, “Killing Eve” scored nominations for the top drama and top new show.

Shows airing the majority of their season between June 1, 2017 and May 31, 2018 were eligible for consideration. The winners will be unveiled on the TCA Awards ceremony on Saturday, Aug. 4 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Robin Thede will host the night’s festivities.
